Sure, it’s easy to open a packet of hot cocoa and add some hot water but it doesn’t really satisfy me. It’s so much yummier to have a homemade cup creamy warm, really chocolatey cocoa. And, it’s pretty simple to make. Here’s my recipe:
- For every 1-1/2 cups of milk use 2 tablespoons of white sugar and 2-1/2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa.
- Whisk together all ingredients in a saucepan over medium high heat until it bubbles and steams. Don’t boil! It’s ready to go. Add marshmallows or whipped cream.
- For a variation use vanilla soy milk (we love this in our family) or add some peppermint extract and a candy cane stirrer for holiday flavor. Or top it off the whipped cream with some caramel drizzle. Yum!
